taglib uri cannot be resolved

I am preparing for SCWCD.When tried to use few jstl tags in my application I am getting the following exception:

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: The absolute uri: cannot be resolved in either web.xml or the jar files deployed with this application

This is the steps I followed

1)I put jstl.jar,standard.jar in WEB-INF/lib dir...
2)I put entry in web.xml like

3)In my jsp file looks like this
<%@ page import="" %>
<%@ taglib prefix="c" uri=" " %>
<c:set target="${Person}" property="firstName" value="Bala"/>
Person's firstName-:${Person.firstName}

I am guessing that server doent refering the any tld file in the lib dir...

Where would be the error?

Thanks in advance

Try this
<jsp:useBean id="person" class="" />
<c:set target="${person}" property="firstName" value="Bala"/>
Person's firstName-:${person.firstName}

1. you don't need the taglib declaration in web.xml
2. Remove the extra space after "core" :
Change <%@ taglib prefix="c" uri=" " %>
into <%@ taglib prefix="c" uri="" %>
